Short Film Of The Day: Jason Reitman’s ‘Consent’

Why Watch? Good old Jason Reitman has another movie coming out this week, and it just so happens that I stumbled upon one of his early short films – one I fell in love with years ago and only recently realized the name behind it.

This dry, hilarious movie delivers the standard (often wordless) negotiation that happens whenever two people get back to the bedroom after a great first date. It just delivers it in a bizarre, strangely sensible way.

Go grab a Notary, and don’t even think about Article 20.

What does it cost? Just 5 minutes of your time.

Check out Consent for yourself:

CONSENT (2004)

Trust us. You have time for more short films.
